Paediatric Dentistry

The programme is for dental graduates who wish to pursue a career in paediatric dentistry in a primary or secondary care setting or in academia; as part of the clinical training, students are treating patients on consultant, trauma and sedation clinics as well as a wide range of medically compromised children which may require students to liaise with paediatric specialists and anaesthetists prior to treatment under general anaesthesia; students who perform well have the opportunity after the first year of the programme to transfer onto the Professional Doctorate in Paediatric Dentistry.

Entry requirements

A recognised undergraduate degree in dentistry (BChD or BDS equivalent); and postgraduate experience equivalent to 2 years full-time clinical practice. Graduates seeking a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST), in order to be eligible to register on the General Dental Council's (GDC) Specialist Lists, must be accepted onto the programme as a Specialist Registrar (StR) with an NTN (National Training Number). Providing all necessary requirements are met, such individuals are then eligible to undertake training for the relevant Royal College memberships.
